Used Leisure Line

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

I just picked up a used Leisure Line stove. I has the looks of the Pocono but only has one blower on the back and has 2 variable control knobs (1 blower, 1 feeder). Would there be any help on what this model is as far as specs and possible a manual. I would like to get a new glass for it as the one in it is crusted/frosted up.

Any other tips on restoring this stove back to tip top shape. Overall everything looks to be in really good shape, but this is my first ever stove so not really sure.

As long as the glass isn't cracked thru, you can use it, it will frost up/cake up with stuff pretty fast after using the stove even when you put a new piece in.

I upgraded my Hyfire to a Coaltrol control and then you don't have to mess with the rheostats to vary the temps.

I was thinking about upgrading to the Coaltrol, just wasn't sure how much of a pain the rheostats were. The stove will be in my basement heating the floor above if that makes any difference.

Well, you would have to adjust all the time to maintain temperatures, if too hot, go down and turn the stove down, too cold, turn it up.

Mine is in the basement also and I can adjust everything from the Thermostat, ie. feed rates, blowers, etc.. or let it control it automatically based on Temperature/Setpoints.

You just have to remember to go down and fill it with coal and empty the ashes..... :)

Spend the $$ on the Coaltrol. You will be much happier.

How about a domestic hot water coil for this stove. would I get that from Lesiue Line as well ?

Any recomendations of wich CoalTrol I would need? I see 4 options. Theres not really a chart to show what the difference between them is.

It was very rusted and needed a lot of work. Had the seller email me more pictures.

You can put any hot water coil in your stove. Doesn't necessary have to be from LL. There are a few different Mfr's. Do a search on Hot water Coil . You would probably also need a pump, PRV, Aquastat, etc...to control the flow and possibly a tempering valve as not to scold anyone with hot water, it can get pretty hot.

I hope I didnt get ripped, I very new to this and it didnt look that bad to me, but what do I know. The inside of the hopper looks to be the worst, the rest just looks like a flash rust on the surface of the metal.

I guess if anything it will be a good educational experience?

I have some questions about installing a Coal-Trol on my Pocono.
The stoker motor and the combustion blower are wired together on my stove, would they be separated out if I used a coal-trol?
